The Stages of PlayGym

Sept. 21 through Oct. 12PlayGym

BabyGym - 4 to 14 months
Thursdays at 11 a.m.
Babies engage in a carefully-planned program that addresses all important areas of early development. Baby sign language, music, movement, socialization, and language development are included in each class. Keepsake art is created every week, giving lots of opportunities for sharing baby's milestones with the family.

Little Ones - 12 to 24 months 
Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. (SOLD OUT), Thursdays at 1:30 p.m.
Caregivers and children enjoy activities based on age-appropriate themes that change weekly. Baby sign language gives children communication skills that transfer to the home setting. All classes include seesaw time, choo-choo, bubbles, rhythm band, and process art.

2 Much Fun - 24 to 36 months
Tuesdays at 11 a.m.(SOLD OUT), Thursdays at 9:30 a.m.
Similar to the Little Ones class, each Two Much Fun class includes process art, seesaw and choo-choo time, parachutes, bubbles, and rhythm band. In addition, our fun weekly themes provide multi-sensory ways to play and build vocabulary. Children also practice social skills as they learn to share, take turns, and enjoy playing in a group setting.

Preschool Enrichment - 3 years to 4 years
Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m.
Children experience sensory-filled activities based on rich early childhood literature. Activities such as making ice cream in a ball, planting seeds, and baking pies provide rich connections to delightful literature. This class features some of PlayGym’s favorite components such as seesaws and rhythm band.

Play It Safe policies
Class size will be limited to no more than 5 parent/child participants. To keep that group as consistent as possible, we will not be able to allow visitors, additional adults or siblings and will not be able to have classes made up during other class times.  

A health screening, including a no contact temperature check, will occur prior to entering the building. All staff, volunteers and visitors guests 5 and up will be required to wear masks. We ask that you wash hands or sanitize frequently and that you spread out from each other as much as possible during PlayGym. We recognize that keeping distance is difficult, especially for young children, and that it will not be possible at all times
